Inter scores 10 out of 10 in the return leg, Sassuolo beaten 2-1 after a heart-pounding match
It was since 2014 that Inter had not been able to overcome Sassuolo at San Siro: finally, the Nerazzurri managed to break this curse by overcoming the neroverde formation 2-1 in the recovery of the 28th matchday of Serie A. A success that is worth as much as the ‘gold for the men of Antonio Conte, who achieved the tenth success in as many matches of the second round, a historic record for the top flight, but above all they widen the furrow from AC Milan direct pursuer now at minus eleven. A match brought home after a heart-pounding match, signed by the fantastic two, namely Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez: it is always the Belgian who lethally break the neroverdi offensive plots, first making himself ready on Ashley Young’s assist, closing with a Imperial header, then going to find Lautaro Martinez with great simplicity serving the Argentine the ball of 2-0. Sassuolo, however, is a very hard nut to crack, and in the final rekindles the match with Hamed Traore’s goal which is worth 2-1. Inter did not break up, on the contrary in the final they devour at least a couple of crystal clear opportunities for the 3-1. But in the end he raises his arms to the sky and wins another 3 points that are worth another brick towards the Scudetto.
